100,000 miles...what now?

Hello all...I'm a newbie.
I recently purchased a E46 2002 325i steptronic with 100,000 miles (I work at an infiniti dealership and they gave it to me for $9k). Car is in great shape...nothing wrong with it except for the typical fan blower regulator goes nuts from time to time (i am about to replace).

I'm curious about what services I need to have done...or can do myself.
Transmission fluid? spark plugs? Are there any other things I need to be aware of at this mileage?
thanks for the help...great site.

Haha... I dont even have a 100,000 miles on my e30 yet...

Just contact the dealer... and they should hook you up...

The dealer should cover it... depends on your warranty... check that.

Good Luck and welcome to the site.

I would be careful with changing the auto tranny fluid this late into the life of the car. I changed mine at about 96K and have been fine, but I've heard others recommend that you NOT change the fluid if the car's this old (instead, plan on socking about $4500 into a new tranny in 50K miles).

Otherwise, go hog-wild replacing all the other fluids and maintenance parts. It makes for a fun weekend job.

wow - that's a sick deal

and what now?
now is the perfect time to either throw away the car or sell it for more money, and buy something better
